I talk about long-term investment ideas on this blog more so in broad terms because my long-term portfolio is one of several portfolios I keep separate from my 12631 portfolio.
With that in mind, if you have been following along with my WWE idea which i introduced back in August 2012 in this blog post in real-time, I sold the remainder of my long-term investment in the name today.
The stock has done way too much, way too soon.
And now everyone loves it, with call buyers acting like Los Angeles Lakers fans near the Staples Center armed with buckets of gasoline and tons of cars at their disposal to light on fire after winning the NBA Finals.
Technically, the monthly chart is way too steep, and the zoomed-out daily chart below is showing signs of extreme exhaustion today. The time to get in was when I posted that top shelf Paolo Conte music video (of which reader and resident castigator “alf44″ approved), not when everyone in the financials news media is telling you that WWE is the wave of the future.
Come on, now, you did not really believe that the Chess Master was a fan of fake wrestling, with grown men in leotards did you?
Sold to you, sir.
